Cops Go to Serve Eviction Notice, Shoot the Guy Living There Instead

It's all fun and games serving an eviction notice until the cops end up shooting the guy who lives there.

The Broward Sheriff's Office was attempting to evict a man from a condo in Pembroke Pines this morning, that is, before police say he set the place on fire.

Pembroke Pines police and fire department personnel showed up to the scene, but in the meantime, a yet-unidentified cop shot the guy.

Police say multiple shots were fired but haven't said how many times the man was hit.

The BSO hasn't released any details related to the incident -- like the man's name, why he was shot, or whether he had guns in the condo.

The man was transferred to a local hospital and is in unknown condition.
